I’m having the same issues... occasionally...

Could it be the total number of folks working from home all telecommuting? Seems to have started about a month ago...

I ran into weird problems with various internet sites when my old computer was still working and ran Win7. The IE browser was no longer supported by sites when they did updates and many functions would not work with my browser. No messages. Things simply would not work or on some sites, certain features that I knew were there would not even show up on my screen. Google Chrome on the same computer would work fine. My guess would be your browser is not playing well with the servers that run this site. When they update the servers, some browsers may no longer be supported. I have a suspicion that big internet servers owners are "encouraged" to drop some browsers by the big browser makers, like Google. So, when servers are updated, suddenly your browser no longer works or works poorly or strangely. The suggestions to try other browsers is a good way to determine if that is what is happening to anyone who experiences stuff like this.

I am not of a mind to add other browsers to solve what I think is a problem with this site. I believe that because I do not have any isssues with the nine other forums that I frequent. One of those other nine (FJRiders.com) uses the same software as this site and I do not have any issues when visiting over there.

Agree. I have no problem with current versions of Safari and Mac Os's on any other forum, or device, I use. Annoying.

If you're not willing to take troubleshooting steps to help determine the cause of the issue, then you are at the mercy of another member willing to help diagnose the problem. It appears that there is a limited subset of members that can help: those that (a.) use iPhones and (b.) are experiencing the click issue. I would love to help troubleshoot, but I am in neither subset.

From what I've experienced its the interconnection between my devices and the server. When I get "stuck" for lack of a better word the transition from page to page simply freezes at under 25% (my guess by load bar progress). I can sometimes recoiver a post thats stuck by back-buttoning, most times not. If I wait long enough I get a "server not responding" message on a blank page. Most of the time I just quit and try later.

FWIW - It took three attempts to log in just now. Same problem.

Edit for spelling - no problem.

Also don't use my phone for this. Screen too small to be usefull. I-Pad not so much and definately not if photos are involved.

This just got stuck. Went throuygh on second try.

I've been clicking as much as I can with my iPad with safari for over 10 minutes but I can't recreate the problem. But I'm only running iOS 10.3.3 as it's an older iPad. Anyone having problems send me the iOS level you are using and a screen shot and I will have my geek for hire look into it.

I did get it to hang once but then hit the back button and then it worked fine again. Weird...

Sometimes it will sit at 25% for a second or two then goes again.

Strange issue. Seems hit or miss. Every once and a while it sticks but hit the back button and all is good for a while. Looking at the phpBB support site and not finding any resolution.

Bizarre... makes no sense...

Be patient. Either hit back button or use chrome for iOS in the mean time...

Really weird. Chrome no problems no matter how hard I try. Safari is hit or miss but not consistent.
